Commanderís Message

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you find in useful both to learn about our organization as well as to link to other organizations in the Washington, DC metropolitan area that are extremely active in recognizing the heritage of our nationís sea services that include the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. Although this may be viewed as competition for limited resources, we have found it very rewarding as each organization provides complementary activities that provide many alternative activities that we may not normally have access to accommodate busy schedules. We work with each entity to promote activities that our members may be interested in. These organizations include:

Our commandery executive committee meets monthly to discuss upcoming events, how we may be able to better recognize our naval history. We encourage our members to participate in these meeting and to get active in our program and initiatives.


If interested in joining our commandery, I encourage you to contact our Vice Commander for Membership.

Thank you.
